Alone on the podium, conductor Jung-Ho Pak stands with arms folded across his chest, his face expressionless except for a watchfulness in his eyes. The orchestra slowly assembles for rehearsal around him, the violinists pressing resin to bows, the oboists tinkering with reeds, the trumpeters filling the room with the wide arc of their arpeggio warm-ups.

The San Diego Symphony isn't commenting, but word is that the orchestra has named Jahja Ling, a 51-year-old Indonesian-born conductor, as its next music director. "We don't have anything to announce at this time," symphony spokesman Stephen Kougias said Tuesday, declining to speculate when an announcement might come. Would he deny the rumors? "No comment." Kougias was responding to a story in the San Diego Union-Tribune that in careful terms reported Ling's imminent hire.

An obscure Soviet orchestration of Mussorgsky's familiar "Pictures at an Exhibition" created special interest at the concert by the Debut Orchestra of the Young Musicians Foundation, Sunday afternoon at Royce Hall. While at times similar to Ravel's scoring of 1922, Sergei Gorchakov's 1955 edition proved an often original, distinctive vision of Mussorgsky's piano suite. Some movements, subtly re-scored (such as "Limoges"), retained the essential Ravel character.

The Young Musicians Foundation concert at the Wilshire Ebell Theater on Sunday was a homecoming of sorts for a former YMF alumna and prize winner. It was nearly 20 years ago that the young Los Angeles-born Zina Schiff, now living in Shreveport, La., played the Sibelius Violin Concerto with the same Debut Orchestra, though she has made subsequent local appearances. Sunday's vehicle was a work heard all-too-infrequently: Barber's Violin Concerto.

Puccini's seldom-heard first opera, the mellifluous, melodramatic "Le Villi" (1884), was brought out of mothballs Monday night at Ambassador Auditorium by the enterprising Los Angeles Concert Opera Assn., and cast with three winners of the 1989 Zachary Opera Awards Auditions. Conductor Lalo Schifrin's understated verismo authority elicited warm and accurate playing from the Young Musicians Foundation Debut Orchestra, and made real aural treats of the opera's several important dances.

Yes, the Mouse shows up and so does Disney "big cheese" Michael Eisner, but most of the night belongs to 82 kids, ages 8 to 12, who perform in "The Sixth Annual Disney's Young Musicians Symphony Orchestra." Their June 25 appearance at the Hollywood Bowl debuts tonight on the Disney Channel.

As part of Orange County's Centennial Celebration, the Pacific Chorale offered a program of American music to conclude its 1988-89 season Saturday night in Segerstrom Hall at the Performing Arts Center. The accent was on American youth as well as music, as the Young Musicians Foundation Debut Orchestra appeared for the first time at the Center. In addition, the performance concluded the chorale's third annual, daylong High School Choral Festival. Choristers from participating schools joined in the rousing finale, Howard Hanson's setting of Whitman poetry, "Song of Democracy."

During the long and distinguished tenure of Daniel Lewis as its music director, the USC Symphony built an enviable reputation for consistency, spirit and polish. That reputation seems in no danger, although Jung-Ho Pak's debut Friday at Bovard Auditorium as the orchestra's new music director began under the temporary pall of oppressively wheezing fans. Working without a baton, Pak appears to be a reassuring and inspiring figure on the podium.

The Young Musicians Foundation Debut Orchestra opened its 35th season Sunday afternoon at Royce Hall in a decidedly impressive manner. The music--by Haydn, Mozart and Bruch--may have been familiar, but the music making was as fresh and invigorating as it comes. Credit youth. After all, no one in this orchestra is over 26 years old. But unlike most other youth orchestras, this ensemble, at least this year's installment of it, can be listened to without allowances for age.
